Just over a week, the band split up for a second time, with a few statements released in between the three members, not much, close to nothing was said about the group’s upcoming album. That’s when Dawn come to the rescue, with yet another personal statement to the fans.
“Lemonade” was the first piece of new material they gave us, we fell in love right away but since the fight, the plans changed about the new album.

“YOU CAN’T LEAK AN ALBUM THAT DOESN’T BELONG TO YOU. PEOPLE HAVE NO CLUE HOW BUSINESS WORKS. WE DON’T OWN THE SONGS. YOU’RE LOOKING AT ME LIKE I STOPPED THE MUSIC. ACTUALLY WE HAD A DEAL AND BECAUSE ‘WE’ AND ‘I’ MEAN ALL OF US TOOK THIS PUBLICLY WE HAVE STOPPED MUSIC AND MONEY. PRODUCERS NOR LABEL WILL RELEASE NOW BECAUSE THEY LOSE MONEY. HAD THIS BEEN HANDLED PRIVATELY. YOU WOULD HAVE GOTTEN AN ALBUM. AND APOLOGIES AND ALL WOULD HAVE BEEN MADE AND WE WOULD HAVE MOVED ON. BUT THAT ISN’T THE WAY IT WAS HANDLED SO LET’S MOVE ON AS THAT IS NOW ‘MY’ ONLY OPTION. THOSE WHO ROCK WITH ME WILL… AND THOSE WHO DON’T I RESPECT THAT AND WILL RESPECTFULLY BLOCK. I NEVER WANT DK FANS TO HAVE TO FIGHT EACH OTHER AND CHOOSE SIDES. BUT WE LEFT YOU NO CHOICE. SO DO WHAT YOUR HEART TELLS YOU AND LET’S JUST MOVE ON. XO”
Is so sad, the whole thing sadness me!!!
What it was about to be a beautiful return to mainstream pop, now it has to be left to the side.
Because unfortunately, she’s right, we either don’t know or forget how the music industry works and all the people involved on the making of the third Danity Kane album can’t ended up loosing any money because of their fight.
Sad but true!!!
